The core Fulbright Scholar Program sends 800 U.S. faculty and professionals abroad each year. Grantees lecture and conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields. The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Purpose: To encourage collaboration between partner institutions and provide a special international education experience for KNU students. It is also hoped that visiting scholars will explore possible research links with their host department during their stay at KNU, and encourage further collaboration on student and faculty levels once they return to their own institution.
Subject Areas: The visiting scholars should be specialized in a filed related to KNU interests and will be hosted by the appropriate KNU department.
The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Institute of International Education's Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) are pleased to announce that 49 grants are available in the 2013-14 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program competition for U.S. academics, professionals, and early and mid-career researchers to teach and/or conduct research in Brazil.
